Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: TDIH & what am I listening to right NOW!

Hey B, I forgot that discussion about 7/2; not sure what I said back then, but I think it was along the lines of that being one of the shows that I do rank very highly for more personal reasons. Along with 8-6 and 11-7 (both of which I think rate objectively, as you and CLIFF note of course), it was a show that had a huge influence on me in the early years...I've bored everyone with my tales of the the two bootlegs of the summer shows, and the FM broadcast tapes of the Harding, that meant by 73 "we" (all the Bay Area heads) had three outstanding shows to compare, play at parties, etc., etc., etc. The tape trading component, at least for us, didn't get into full swing til later in the 70s (unlike some from LA and NY that started sooner...GoP was probably hawking them at the local supermarket in 67 in NY).

So, though I stand by the Loser of 7-2 as my all time fav, it's for largely personal preference, and the impact of the sorrowful lead that it holds that place in my heart...can still think of a large # of folks/parties in which I trotted that out, my first serious case of "inflicting" the DEAD on anyone and everyone that came round.

Now I just spend my time forcing you all to read (or not...damn!?) my drivel hereabouts...

We're all influenced by the shows that we had way back before the treasure chest was opened up. It was my endless search for 6-27-85 after my cassette wore out that led me to find the archive. I listened to 7-2-71 yesterday, and although I do like it for some reason it just doesn't resonate like other shows that year.

By the way it's funny you mention the Dream Bowl as it is the next cd queued up in my car. I haven't heard that one in a while.

Yep; great one--seeing Mando reminded of it as it's one of his favs...it was also a special gift from a special someone here that goes by the name of Arbuthnot, so it will, maybe after another 40 yrs, feel like 7-2 for me from a sentimental perspective. For now I just love it cause it's a great one. Have a good night, BD.

There was a link for the next road trips that seems to have disappeared from dead.net. It was for 11-14&15-71. Looks like it will be road trips 3.2

Great news, eh? That was what got me going on them...fig'd I'd give the versions I had a good listen first, and they are certainly worth the upgrade, at least for me...since I focuse on 71 and before, I can save up my shekels to get whatever they put out for that time period. The quality of these two shows is excellent, and as the more detailed workup by CLIFF reveals, 14 is just first rate, while the 15th is perhaps a tad less so with sound levels and such (hhhmmm, hope I didn't get that reversed or he'll let me have it again).

I never sold tapes at the local supermarket. I only sold them on the subway.

In the fall of 1971, several of the FM tapes began to make the rounds. They were generlly the first complee sbd tapes I had come across. We had Cincinatti, New York, Winterland New Year's, and Hading 11-07. Each was great. Each was different. 11-07 ruled.
